Boy Ecury will be screened at the Eye Filmmuseum on May 25th as part of a special program dedicated to Felix de Rooy. The internationally acclaimed film, directed by Frans Weisz and written by Arthur Japin, tells the story of Boy Ecury, a resistance fighter from Aruba who was executed in 1944. In this historical drama, de Rooy portrays Dundun Ecury, Boy’s father, who travels to the Netherlands after the war in search of his son’s remains. Why did Boy join the Dutch resistance? How and by whom was he killed? And above all, who was he? In his quest, Dundun has only one fact to hold onto: that Boy did not die in vain.
Felix de Rooy (born 1952) is a filmmaker from Curaçao who is also active as an actor, visual artist, theatre maker, and collector. He is seen as an important source of inspiration by many young creators in the Netherlands and the Caribbean. From May 6th to May 27th, Eye Filmmuseum is presenting a retrospective of short and feature films by and with Felix de Rooy.
